pI was ordering a new Allerpak and was hoping to see one a little larger to carry Benedryl too. Then thought it might be nice to see pre-packaged single dose Benedryl liquid. Called Pfizer, 1-800-524-2624, and was told they have been getting numerous requests for same and would consider it if the requests keep coming. So, if you are interested in this, give 'em a call./p

Very interesting! Thanks for posting. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I have thought about this in the past since I always carry liquid Benadryl with my Epi pen JR and also keep it in my childs fanny pack that his teacher wears. It would be great to have a smaller single size dose of the liquid available.
The rep said she would forward my comments on and that she has been getting requests for this product packaging.
Lets keep calling so we can make a change and possibly have this product available soon!

That's so wild - I just called them today too and asked the exact same question. You probably talked to the same guy, and he was probably thinking of me when he told you they had been getting multiple requests! Has anyone found a smaller container to create their own single-dose?

Thanks for the link. I just sent an email too. I would love it if they would do it. I don't feel safe decanting it into another container. They say that you should keep meds in their original container for safety sake. I have heard that the wrong kind of container could affect the potency. I carry the fastmelt tablets with his Epipen but would prefer the liquid.

I talked to my pharmacist and got from him a small bottle with a safety cap used for dispensing liquid prescription meds. On a small piece of paper I wrote
"Children's Benedryl: Expires xx/xx/xx
Give Lauren for ",
wrapped it around the bottom and then used packing tape to seal it to the bottle.
I know it isn't a good idea to do this but it was much easier than carrying the original bottle.
But...now that she is in school, they require, understandable, the med be in the original container.

Have you tried using the fastmelt? I love it! I just cut around the tablet into a circle and it fits right on top of the epi pen just beneath the lid. Then he puts it into his Medi Pack shot holder and has the shot and benedryl on him at all times! The school knows its there and he doesn't have to wait for someone to go to the office to find it. Its really convenient. It should work for all but babies as it melts right in the mouth.
HTH,
Valerie

Have you found fastmelts that don't contain decongestants and other things like that? I haven't seen any pure antihistamine fastmelts.

My allergist did not recommend that I use the fast melt benedryl. It contains something else that the other did not...it has been a while since I asked about it and actually got the information from her nurse. I also do not know if it is because of his age (3) that they recommended staying with the normal Benedryl. I should probably find out more when I post, but I just remember I was told not to use them.

HI,
I was looking through this thread and wondered if anyone knew of any progress with this. It would be great if the company would follow through and make this in single doses.
Anyone know anything on this
Thanks
Jane

Today at walmart I saw benadryl grape flavored chewable tablets and also cherry ones that dissolves as soon as they touch your tongue,these are much easier to carry around than the bottle.has anyone tried these?
